Title: Live In Chez PauletteLabel: Blaze Bayley Recording
album is the amalgamation of 4 years of solid graft work
from Blaze Bayley and his backing band (otherwise known as
homage to these years, a majority of focus is given to the
‘Infinite Entanglement’ era songs along with deep cuts
from Blaze Bayley & Iron Maiden’s back catalogue.
very best compositions from the ‘Infinite Entanglement’
trilogy are handpicked for this live album that make for an
exceptionally solid release.
From chapter I, ‘Calling You Home’, ‘Independence’, ‘A Thousand Years’ & finale of ‘Dark Energy 256’ are absolute riff ripping, crowd-pleasing classics. ‘Endure and Survive’, ‘Fight Back’ and ‘Escape Velocity’ from Chapter II (Endure and Survive), deliver all the staple point sing-along choruses that Blaze is renowned for.
from Chapter III (the Redemption of William Black) are the
anthemic ‘Redeemer’, ‘Prayers of Light’ & ‘Are
You Here’ that round of a captivating chunk of the set
list. Paying respect to the years Bayley featured in Iron
Maiden, ‘Man on the Edge’, ‘Futureal’, (one of my
favorites) ‘Virus’ and ‘Angel and the Gambler’ all
make an appearance much to the delight of the fans. The
sole composition to feature from Blaze’s early years is
the title track from ‘Silicon Messiah’ that has not had
an airing for the past few tours.
